THE STAFF 



To All Maryville College Students of 1958-1959: 

In behalf of the officers, teachers, and staff of 
Maryville College I wish to extend a genuine welcome 
and sincere good wishes to students, old and new, who 
register in 1958-1959. 

This will be the College's 140th year. Our age 
therefore is about fifteenth from that of the oldest 
among the 471 institutions of higher learning located 
from Texas to Virginia in the region of the Southern 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools; and we 
are about fiftieth in age among all the 1,937 colleges 
and universities of the nation. While the age of an in- 
stitution does not guarantee its quality, it does testify 
in general to the experience and soundness of its 
ideals and methods, and to the stability of the founda- 
tions on which to build for the greater things of the 
future. 

That students and faculty alike may, in motivation 
and performance, make the coming year an increas- 
ingly successful one is my sincere wish and prayer. 

Ralph Waldo Lloyd 
President 



ALMA MATER 

Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains 
Pierce the southern blue, 

Proudly stands our Alma Mater, 
Noble, grand, and true. 

Chorus 

Orange, Garnet, float forever, 

Ensign of our hill! 
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater, 

Hail to Maryville! 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars 

Ever green appears, 
So thy memory fresh shall linger 

Through life's smiles and tears. 

Lift the chorus, wake the echoes, 

Make the welkin ring! 
Hail the queen of all the highlands, 

Loud her praises sing! 



FIGHT SONG 

"On Highlanders" 

(Words and Music by Charles Huffman, '49) 

On, Highlanders, down the field, 

Rolling up a high score! 
Tear into the end zone, 

Smash on through that line, 
Highlanders! 

Send a rousing cheer on high, 
And our boys will shine. 

Come on and fight, fight, fight! 
Come on and fight, fight, fight! 

For dear old Maryville!

TRADITIONS 

Colleges have personalities just as people do. The 
things big and little - the traditions - make up this 
personality. As you become acquainted and catch the 
spirit of the traditions at Maryville, it will broaden 
your understanding of your college and will help to 
make your memories of your days here vivid and pleas- 
ant. 

Your first memories will be those of LINES — reg- 
istration, Treasurer's Office, Bookstore, but the nicest 
line is the FACULTY RECEPTION LINE. This is the 
official greeting of all the faculty for all the students 
and is a must for freshmen. Don your best formal, your 
firmest handshake, your most sincere smile, and enjoy 
yourself. 

The first two weeks are hectic, happy days for 
freshmen as you are sought enthusiastically by the four 
societies. Theta Epsilon and Alpha Sigma, Chi Beta 
and Kappa Phi, are the two pairs of sister and brother 
societies. These societies carry out friendly but com- 
petetive RUSH WEEKS sponsoring for freshmen such 
social events as teas, square dances, fashion shows, and 
splash parties. The climax of each RUSH WEEK is 
"The Formal". This musical production is written and 
produced entirely by students. Freshmen girls decked 
out in their loveliest formals are escorted by blind 
dates of the brother society. The decision of which 
society is a hard one, but whichever one you choose 
deserves your wholehearted support. 

THE STUDENT CENTER, with the Y-STORE, is the 
place to stop for a quick coke, sandwich, or icecream 
cone. Also, a game of ping-pong or bridge is sure to 
be in progress most anytime during the day. Stop in 
and enjoy the friendly atmosphere with other students. 



WARMTH and FRIENDLINESS are two of the most 
important traditions at Maryville. The friendly "hi" 
and sincere smiles of all you meet are a vital part of 
the whole atmosphere. Be a part of this spirit — you 
will find friends are easily made. 

Soon FOUNDERS AND HOMECOMING DAY comes 
in all its dignity. The morning chapel service, gay 
dorm decorations, and HOMECOMING PARADE make 
this a day to remember. The lovely senior girl who 
reigns as Homecoming Queen over the football game 
will have this as one of the happiest memories of her 
college career. 

Your guess is as good as ours as to what the theme 
of this year's BARNWARMING will be. This is THE 
show of the fall semester and is held each Thanks- 
giving eve in the Alumni Gym. Sponsored by the Y's, 
every effort is made to present the best talent in this 
musical production. The court of the King and Queen 
is made up of attendants from each of the four classes, 
elected by the student body. This, too, is kept top 
secret until BARNWARMING night. 

In no time at all Christmas is here, bringing a wel- 
come vacation. Although it is a busy season of final 
exams, you will want to plan time for the many beau- 
tiful musical programs and social events. Handel's 
MESSIAH presented by the Vesper Choir and com- 
bined Glee Clubs, accompanied by the College orches- 
tra, is one of the most inspiring programs of the year 
and no Christmas season would be complete at Mary- 
ville without CHRISTMAS VESPERS presented by the 
same groups the last Sunday night before vacation. 

The sudden interest in domestic affairs evidenced 
in spring means that OPEN HOUSE is on the way. Put 
your room in its best "apple pie" order and be a part 
of this tradition of seeing how the other half lives!

Spring is officially here when college students, town 
people, and children make their way to the Amphi- 
theater in the college woods for the annual MAY DAY 
PAGEANT. Produced by the Women's Physical Edu- 
cation Department, this colorful occasion is reigned 
over by the May Day Court. The Queen is chosen from 
the Senior Class and her attendants from the other 
four classes. 

We began our traditions telling you about the first 
days on the Hill. As a climax comes COMMENCE- 
MENT with its dignified services and many mixed 
emotions. One of the lovely traditions is the DAISY 
CHAIN composed of fourteen girls from the Junior 
Class, who form the chain through which the gradua- 
tion procession passes. As seniors leave the campus 
many find that the strength, knowledge, and insight 
they have developed here is good preparation for 
worthwhile service in their chosen field. 

Maryville emphasizes the building of the mind, body, 
and spirit. In her organization she develops personality 
and friendship, as students work and play together 
In her classes and studies she emphasizes the im- 
portance of intellectual curiosity and the acquiring of 
knowledge. And in her RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS 
and services spiritual growth is nurtured and one is 
inspired to loftier goals. Through each of these areas 
there is a common purpose which is a strong unifying 
factor in the campus life. It is the spiritual emphasis 
on our campus that is the impetus to the friendliness 
and desire to help that are so prevalent among our 
students. This is an introduction to the religious pro- 
gram that MarvWIle offers. These are some of the high- 
lights of the opportunities and vital programs that are 
planned for the students to participate in, to share, 
and to enjoy. 

ALL-CAMPUS PRAYER MEETING is held every 
Thursday evening at 9:30 in the Y rooms in Thaw 



Hall. These meetings, led by students, provide an op- 
portunity for all to share in prayer and Christian 
thought together. 

The LITTLE CHAPEL located in the Samuel Tyndale 
Wilson Chapel is open at all times for private and 
small group devototions. 

Sunday is a quiet, peacful day for the students as 
they return from Sunday School and Church. In the 
afternoon the Y's give an inspiring program and in the 
evening VESPERS provides an opportunity for worship 
and praise as we hear a message from a speaker and 
listen to our own Vesper Choir. Sunday is the day that 
starts our week off with freshness and vigor. 

Sometime early in the fall, the students begin their 
drive for the FRED 'HOPE FUND, which was estab- 
lished as a tribute to the memory of one of Maryville's 
outstanding graduates, Fred Hope, who spent his life 
as a missionary in Africa. Today this fund enables 
Maryville College students and faculty to have a part 
in some outstanding and needy mission work in the 
foreign field. In the past years we have given our sup- 
port to a hospital in Ferozepore. India, where Dr. 
Dorothy Ferris, a graduate of Marvville, is head doc- 
tor. She was on our campus in 1955 telling us of the 
work and advancements that are being done in her 
area. This drive is not only a responsibility but a pri- 
vilege. You'll want to share in this worthwhile enter- 
prise. 

In the first few davs of our second semester we 
have an in^oirinq week of religious emphasis, FEB- 
RUARY MEETINGS. The team of leaders, a speaker, 
a oianist, and a sonq leader, conduct the services 
morning and evening for a period of ten days. The 
strong student interest in these messages usually re- 
sults in further group discussion after the regular ser- 
vices and in many private conferences with the lead- 
ers. Over the year students and faculty have found 

10 



renewed strength and spiritual re-awakening in these 
February Meetings, which are one of the oldest and 
strongest of our Maryville traditions. 

Nothing is more beautiful than seeing the sun's 
first rays burst over the Smokies as the Vesper Choir 
sings, "Alleluia, Christ is Risen." EASTER SUNRISE 
SERVICE on Easter morning is an inspiring and enrich- 
ing experience. 

Each spring, near the end of the school year, the Y's 
RETREAT to a beautiful lake in the mountains for the 
week-end. This is a time not only of spiritual fellow- 
ship, but of spiritual evaluation of the programs and 
individual growth of the year. The RETREAT also 
gives an opportunity to plan a more pertinent and vital 
program for the following year. A new theme is chosen 
as a guide for both Y's to follow and to share. This 
year the theme is"A Well Balanced Life." The Y's are 
important organizations on the campus, and their 
spiritual influence is shown by the active membership 
and wide interest that is shown as the students par- 
ticipate in the programs together. 

In addition to the many groups on campus which 
give opportunity for spiritual growth there is MORN- 
ING WATCH for your own private devotions. These 
quiet moments mean much to the students who take 
advantage of them. We hope you may feel the true 
spirit of Maryville College and take part in the many 
opportunities offered for friendship and personal de- 
velopment. 

ARTISTS SERIES brings to the campus each year 
outstanding musical and dramatic artists. LECTURE 
SERIES gives the opportunity to hear noted scholors 
and authorities in many fields.

DORMITORY LIFE 

One of the first things we learn at college is to 
live with a large group of people instead of just the 
three or four that most of us are used to. Experience 
has taught us that the oft-quoted Golden Rule is the 
best policy to follow. Many rights and privileges are 
ours to enjoy as long as we are careful to respect the 
rights and privileges of everyone else. We're offering 
a few suggestions that we hope will make your days 
in the dorm happy ones. 

To be a good dorm student DO: 

— Limit the length of your phone calls 
— Gather up the dirt after sweeping instead of leav- 
ing it in the halls 
— Wait until after "busy" hours to wash your clothes 

in the bathrooms 
— Respect study hours 

— Be quite in the mornings while others are still asleep 
— Do your week's ironing in the laundry room and not 

on the ironing boards on the floors 
— Clean the tubs, basins, etc., after using them 
— Remove hot irons from the ironing boards 
— Return supplies to the medicine chest 
— Be quiet and considerate of those who are trying to 

study or sleep 
— Do your share of helping, but refrain from being a 

habitual borrower 
— Avoid waiting until open house to start cleaning 

your room 
- — Appear properly clad when in the halls, for guests 

and visitors have a way of appearing at the most 

unexpected times 
— Be a friend 
— Make your conduct in the lounges and public rooms 

such that others will feel free and welcome to 

come in at all times

student will be brought before the WSCA Coordinat- 
ing Council rather than the House Committee or she 
may be brought directly before the Coordinating Coun-

DINING HALL 

Meals are served in the Dining Hall on the first floor 
of Pearsons Hall according to the following schedule: 
Weekdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 6:00 p.m. 
Saturdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m ; 
Sundays: 8:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. 

Your guests may eat in the dining room by arrang- 
ing with the Dietitian. Meal prices are: 
Weekdays : 

Breakfast, 35c; Lunch, 75c; Dinner, 75c 
Saturdays : 

Breakfast, 35c; Lunch, 75c; Supper, 40c. 
Sundays: 

Breakfast, 35c; Dinner, $1.00; Supper, 40c. 

All seven of your tablemates will appreciate your 
appearing well-groomed at meals, especially dinner. 
For Sunday dinner, both men and women are expected 
to wear their "Sunday best." 

Try to make conversation table-wide, but remember 
there are tables all around you, and it is annoying to 
them to have to listen to your conversation. After all, 
loud and boisterous talking is bad manners anywhere. 
And speaking of manners, be sure to take them along 
when you go to the Dining Hall. A polite "please" or 
"thank you" isn't too heavy a burden for anyone to 
carry. 

Your waitress will appreciate your thoughtfulness 
in getting to and from meals on time, since she has 
classes and obligations too. 

It is customary that grace be said before every meal, 
meal; 

Again our advice is to be friendly and courteous!

29 



ON GOING TO CLASS 

Regular attendance at classes, chapel, Sunday school, 
and church is an important part of a successful record 
at Maryville College. You should not miss any sched- 
uled class or other activity unless it is absolutely neces- 
sary, and you should keep an accurate record with your 
Housemother of any such absence. 

Attendance requirements are based on the principle 
that credit is earned by attendance at classes as well 
as by performance on class work. If a student incurs 
more than a minimum allowance of absences there is 
placed on his permanent record a statement of ad- 
ditional hours to be earned in order to meet graduation 
requirements. 

In general, the procedure is this. To cover necessary 
absence, the student is allowed as many absences per 
semester from each class as the class meetings per 
week. This allowance must be used only for unavoid- 
able absence, such as for serious illness or other em- 
ergency. The allowance for chapel is 5 absences per 
semester and for Sunday school and church (or Ves- 
pers) a total of 6 absences per semester (i.e., absences 
from Sunday school and church added together must 
not exceed 6). Absences for authorized college activi- 
ties (athletic teams, debate teams, etc.) count half: 
absences on the day before and the day after an an- 
nounced holiday or recess count double. 

For each absence over the allowance, additiona' 
graduation requirement of 1 15 semester hour is entered 
on the student's record. Exception is made only in un- 
usual cases, such as serious illness requiring hospitali- 
zation, required service to the College, and the like, 
upon appeal filed by the student within two days fol- 



30 



lowing the absence. The appeal is acted on by a fac- 
ulty committee at the end of the semester, or earlier 
if required in special cases. 

If a student accumulates as much as 4 semester 
hours of such additional requirement in a semester he 
is suspended from College for the remainder of the 
semester, unless re- instated by the Faculty. Students 
on the Honor Roll (standing of 2.25) the previous 
semester are not bound by the class allowances, but a 
record of their absences is kept as for other students, 
and they must take all announced tests as scheduled. 
Such students have the same requirements as others 
for chapel, Sunday school, and church. 

An announced test may be made up only by permis- 
sion of the Personnel Office to the teacher concerned, 
upon presentation of evidence by the student that the 
absence was unavoidable. In case of doubt, the Per- 
sonnel Office should be consulted before the absence. 
It is the policy of the College that in view of the de- 
lay and irregularity involved, a make-up test is to be 
more difficult than the original. 

Asences for any cause totaling one fourth of the 
class meetings prevent a grade above "D" in the 
course: if absences total one half of the class meet- 
ings, "F" Is given.

Printed expressions often fall short of the writer's 
intentions. A dull letter is the last way I should hope 
either to introduce you to Maryville or to welcome your 
return. The spirit I would write about is something 
you live with but do not attempt to describe. 

I can express my desire to see that spirit renewed 
and strengthened. I encourage you to make this year 
not just one of books and lectures, but a time when 
you will grow into a mature understanding of what 
lies beyond the classroom door. This can be accom- 
plished through your willingness to accept a forceful 
part in the program of student government. The pat- 
tern we set in our college years is the one that will 
determine our strength as we confront the problems 
of a challenging world. 

Sincerely, 



Don Newroth 
President of the 
Student Body

HOW WE SPEND OUR FREE TIME 

While Maryville College puts its major emphasis, 
naturally enough, on scholastic standing, you'll want 
to be active in a few extra-curricular fields too. We 
warn you — you'll be tempted to join all the facinat- 
ing clubs and organizations the campus boasts. But 
book learning comes first; better still, find a happy 
balance between grades and activities. You'li find 
enough of both to satisfy you; and while our hospital 
is cool and comfortable, it isn't run as a rest home for 
exhausted activity hounds. 

We hope you'll find activities that will make tr»3 
most of your time and interests. Efforts and enthusiasm 
wear better and are more appreciated when they are 
concentrated. If you budget your time wisely, you'll 
have not only good grades but also an important 
place in campus life. 

HONORARY FRATERNITIES

have a grade point ratio of 2.33, better than a B

dents who are planning to go to the field, but also, 
chiefly, of all those who are in any way interested in 
th« m'ssion of Christ's church. The weekly programs 
(Sunday night after Vespers, usually in Bartlett Hall) 
present informative and challenging aspects of the work 
being done on both the foreign and home mission 
fields. Regular prayer-fellowship and study groups, a 
special missionary out-reach project, and socials also 
have a vital part in the total Vol's program.

tory periods. The club is open to all those interested. 

Parish Project 

Maryville College students render valuable service 
in the Faith Cooperative Parish, made up of small 
churches, schools, and mission points in the area sur- 
rounding Maryville. College students are needed in the

conferences for guidance in their program.

the meaning of their initials a secret. At the end of 
each year two freshmen and one sophomore are elect- 
ed members. Originally organized for hiking, the club 
today is purely social. 

Business Club 

: The Business Club was formed for the purpose of 
promoting a better understanding of sound business 
practices and to give its members a wider acquaint- 
ance with the various fields of business and the op- 
portunities and possibilities that they offer. This is 
done through semi-monthly meetings at which dif- 
ferent business leaders talk to the group, and films on

and economics, its meetings are open to anyone in- 
terested in the field of business.

Music Educators National Conference as Student Mem- 
bers Chapter 383. Membership is open to all students 
interested in teaching music. Meetings are held the 
first and third Thursdays of each month. 

Music 

If you have any musical ability whatsoever, be it 
singing, blowing a tuba, or playing a violin, there's 
ample opportunity at Maryville to develop those tal- 
ents. The musical program gets in full swing with the 
performance of the marching band at the football 

80 



games and ends with the choir's final anthem on 
graduation day. Recitals which anyone may attend are 
given from time to time by music students and faculty. 

Vesper Choir 

The Vesper Choir provides good training and gen- 
uine pleasure for those who are interested in singing. 
It is composed of about sixty members who must pass 
rigid tryouts before they are accepted. The group par- 
ticipates in the weekly vesper services and the daily 
chapel programs, and presents special programs in 
Maryviile and surrounding cities. The Choir has sung 
in many cities of the East, Midwest, and South. 

AIE-Cerl Choir 

The sixty girls who compose this group are select- 
ed by tryouts each semester. They replace the Vesper 
Choir at the Sunday evening service a number of times 
a year. In the fall the Girls' Choir combines with the 
Men's Glee Club to present a sacred concert, and in 
the spring the combined groups present a program of 
secular music. 

Men's Glee Club 

This group consists of about forty men, but ad- 
ditional members may be admitted by tryouts each 
semester. The sacred concert in the fall and a secular 
program in the spring are the highlights of the year's 
activities for the Glee Club. 

Band 

The students who enjoy playing a musical instru- 
ment are urged to try out for the College marching 
band. The band, numbering about fifty pieces, plays 
for all the home football games and takes occasional 
out-of-town trips with the team. For freshmen and 
sophomores the marching practice takes the place of 
the physical education requirement. When football sea- 



81 



son is over, the marching band reorganizes as a con- 
cert band, which gives an outdoor concert during the 
last few days before Commencement. Don't take the 
chance of not having an instrument for tryouts; bring 
it along with you this fall. 

As befits true "Highlanders," the band is uniformed 
in authentically styled kilts of imported Scotch wool. 
They make a striking appearance on parade and are 
the pride of the campus. 

Orchestra 

Orchestra members are admitted and placed by try- 
outs each fall. They gain valuable experience in pre- 
senting two concerts of classical numbers annually and 
accompanying "Messiah." Their spring concert fea- 
tures an outstanding music student playing a well- 
known concerto. 

Tau Kappa Chi 

This is a musical organization for students who 
either are music majors or are taking applied music. 
Its purpose is to promote student and community 
interest in music. The aims are to raise the general 
academic standing of those enrolled in music; to pro- 
vide a goal for students interested in music; to pro- 
mote thoroughly trained musicianship; and to further 
the understanding of all types of music. A general 
average of B for the last two semesters is required 
for membership. 

String Ensemble 

The String Ensemble is open to all string players in 
the orchestra. Various programs are given throughout 
the year, both on and off campus. 

DRAMA AND DEBATE 
Playhouse 

The Maryville College Playhouse has at its disposal 
one of the finest and best equipped theatres in this 

82 



part of the country. Playhouse presents three major 
productions each year. Last year, the plays were Shak- 
spere's Twelfth Night, Loyalties by John Galsworthy, 
and Juno and the Paycock by Sean O' Casey. The major 
productions for this year will be Tennessee Williams' 
The Class Menagerie, The Shoemaker's Holiday by 
Thomas Dekker, and The Madwoman of Chaillot by 
jean Ciraudoux. Besides the three major plays, several 
one-act plays are given as Experimentals. 

Playhouse originated in the fall of 1949 and is open 
to all those who are interested in acting or in any of 
the technical aspects of production. Under a point sys- 
tem, apprentices work for the positions of Journey- 
man, Player, and Master Player. 

Debate 

Debating is an excellent extra-curricular activity 
and is a great aid to the development of poise and 
self-confidence. It is especially valuable for those 
planning to enter the ministry or law professions. The 
record of the varsity squad this past year was particu- 
larly outstanding. Maryville took sweepstakes in four 
out of five major tournaments. At the Appalachian 
Tournament the teams took first in both men's and 
women's debate. At the Tennessee State Tournament, 
Maryville women won second in debate and the team 
members took several firsts in individual events. In 
the next tournament at Hickory, North Carolina, the 
squad took first in men's debate, first in women's de- 
bate, and placed either first or second in each of ten 
individual speaking contests. The climax of the 1957- 
58 forensic year was the Pi Kappa Delta Provincial 
Tournament at Wake Forest College. Here Maryville 
College capped numerous superiors in both debate and 
individual speaking events, accumulating more points 
than any other school represented in this eight-state 
tournament. 



83 



CAMPUS PUBUCATIONS 

Opportunities for creative writing are offered 
through the various college publications. Many who are 
interested in journalism gain valuable experience by 
serving on the staff of the college newspaper. 

Highland Echo 

The Highland Echo is the college newspaper, usually 
published weekly. Freshmen and other new students 
are welcomed and urged to try out for staff positions 
if they are interested. At the end of each college 
year, staff promotions are made on the basis of writ- 
ing, interest, and dependability. The Echo constitution 
limits the number of staff members from each college 
class. The editor is elected by the staff, and is usually 
a senior. Chief purpose and policy of the Echo is to 
present campus news as interestingly and as thoroughly 
as possible. 

Chilhowean 

The Chilhowean is the annual year-book which is 
published by members of the junior class. It gives a 
vivid account in pictures of the outstanding events of 
the year as well as individual pictures of almost all of 
the student body.

The Alumni Magazine sends news of the College 
and alumni to former students of the College. It is 
published semi-annually by the Alumni Office. 

M Book 

As you have already discovered, the M Book is the 
little volume you are now reading. It is published 
every year by the YMCA and YWCA and is the official 
College handbook. College rules, customs, and activi- 
ties are described within for the student's benefit. 

84 



SPORTS 

For the fellow who has at some time dreamed of 
being a star in some sport, Maryville offers many 
opportunities. Maryville is very active in intercollegi- 
ate sports and also maintains a well-organized intra- 
mural program for those who wish to participate. For 
the girls there is a well-developed point system 
whereby a girl may earn an "M" or an "MC" mono- 
gram. No one is expected to wear other school letters 
at Maryville. Maryville does not buy her athletes. 
Those who participate in intercollegiate sports earn 
their places on the teams by physical prowess and 
acceptable scholarship. 

INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

In intercollegiate competition Maryville fields teams 
in football, basketball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, 
and track. Under the direction of Coach Lombe S. 
Honaker, the Scots consistently sport one of the best 
baseball records in the State. They finished the past 
season with a 10-4 won- lost record. 

Maryville is also known for the fine wrestling 
teams which Coaches J. D. Davis and Marvin Mitchell 
have produced. And the 'Highlanders hold their own 
with schools of comparable size in the other sports. 

Intercollegiate athletics at Maryville are marked, 
not by subsidation and regimentation, but by student 
participation and support. And with this continued 
student support the Maryville athletic program will 
continue to flourish.
